Based in Stockport, the BARROWMEAD ENSEMBLE was formed in 1976. Each year it gives public performances, mainly in the Manchester area, although recitals have been performed as far afield as Norfolk, Kent, Perthshire and Tayside.
The Ensemble’s repertoire includes music from the Medieval and Renaissance Periods to less commonly heard Twentieth Century works. These include several written for the ensemble. The ensemble has played many concerts for the National Trust for England & Wales, in period costume.
The BARROWMEAD ENSEMBLE plays a considerable number of instruments ranging from the sopranino to the six-foot contra-bass recorder.
